Foster Gamble « Thrive Debunked By SlayerX3 One of the central passages of Thrive is a section often referred to as “Follow the Money,” which Thrive fans treat as some sort of slogan. This section contains Foster Gamble and others’ views on fractional reserve banking, the Federal Reserve, the economic crisis, and conspiracy theories related to these. This article debunks those ideas. Fraction Reserve Banking Disclaimer: Before the Wikipedia bashing begins, I’m using Wikipedia for two reasons: (1) Simplicity, and (2) it works well for summaries of information, even though I will provide further sources and more detailed information links than Wikipedia can provide. PS: This part of the movie is incredibly complicated for anyone involved here to deal with, as given that most people don’t understand how economy and politics work by themselves, much less together, unless you’re well-versed in mathematics, economics or political science. What is Fractional Reserve Banking? Does it really “create money out of nowhere?” Ms. G.

Düğümküme Why Remix Culture Needs New Copyright Laws Recyclage à l’œuvre Everything is a Remix , tout est un remix, constate la série documentaire en quatre parties du réalisateur new-yorkais Kirby Ferguson dont les deux premières sont déjà en ligne. L’auteur fait le point sur cette pratique consistant à «combiner ou éditer du matériel existant pour produire quelque chose de neuf» . Le premier volet se penche sur le remix musical, popularisé par le hip-hop et sa technique du sampling, traçant le riff de basse du Good Times de Chic à travers les âges (de The Sugarhill Gang à Daft Punk), avant de s’attarder sur le cas Led Zeppelin, premier groupe à copier ouvertement des morceaux existants sans créditer leurs auteurs. Le second se focalise sur deux pilleurs sans vergogne de Hollywood, George Lucas avec Star Wars et bien sûr le roi du mashup Quentin Tarantino, s’amusant à juxtaposer les scènes de Kill Bill avec celles issues des films qui les ont inspirées.

Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media (1992) is a documentary film that explores the political life and ideas of Noam Chomsky, a linguist, intellectual, and political activist. Created by two Canadian filmmakers, Mark Achbar and Peter Wintonick, it expands on the ideas of Chomsky's earlier book, Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media, which he co-wrote with Edward S. Herman. The film presents and illustrates Chomsky's and Herman's thesis that corporate media, as profit-driven institutions, tend to serve and further the agendas of the interests of dominant, elite groups in the society. A centerpiece of the film is a long examination of the history of The New York Times' coverage of the Indonesian occupation of East Timor, which Chomsky says exemplifies the media's unwillingness to criticize an ally of the elite. Companion book[edit] Mark Achbar edited a companion book of the same name. See also[edit] External links[edit] Multimedia[edit] References[edit]

Etohum - Girişimci - Yatırımcı Buluşması Education Remix: Unlocking Creativity to Boost Learning December 1, 2010 By: John Orlando, PhD in Teaching with Technology When considering the major advances in communication — from the printing press, to the telephone, to the television — each medium shared the characteristic of allowing either one-to-one communication or one-to-many communication. People are just starting to understand the fundamental transformation in communication that has occurred during the past five years, and some educators don’t believe in the power that social media can bring to learning. One example is through the new remix culture. While fun to create, a remix also can be used as a learning activity. Creating the video was a learning activity. Remixing is also a fundamentally creative process, as the creator must develop links between two different topics. One simple way to use remixing in your classes is to provide extra credit to students who develop a short video that reinterprets some part of popular culture in a way related to the class subject.
